"Eviction Night: Maggie vs.
Eric" - July 28
Last time, James was the
target of Eric's politicking. In order to save himself,
he fessed up to Kaysar about him and Sarah. That put the
wheels in motion to give James the veto to save himself
and put Eric up. Will the new alliance of four (six if
you count Rachel & Howie) succeed in this new plan?
eviction night, and for the first time, secret partners
are now competing against each other to stave off an
eviction notice. And sure enough, all of the houseguests
will learn of the big secret that they all share, that
each one of them has a secret partner in the house.
Kaysar knew he was going to cause a revolution by
rigging Eric's nomination. "They're not even worth my
eyesight," Eric says of Kaysar and James. Sarah tried to
"no hard feelings," but the two nominees... pretty much
blew her off. "From the beginning, he said that it was
only a game. He's not living by his words, and he's
acting very immature about it."
Eric asks Ivette if she was
in on it. "I will grab my bags and walk out of his (^_^)ing
house right now," she answers, outing Janelle as playing
nasty. "I'm not going to switch sides just for the sake
that one team might win." Eric tells Ivette to relax, as
her being in the game may be "the sweetest revenge of
warns that she may be the stronger of the pair. "But the
game's not over." One of them is going to stay. Who will
the house be left with as a bigger threat? Howie thinks
that Maggie is the head and Eric is the tail. Maggie is
definitely a smarter player, says Kaysar. Meanwhile,
Maggie tells Eric not to pack as if they're going home.
"It's not over unless Julie says it's over." She thinks
that Eric is going to stay, and tells Eric to play like
she's going home. "Either way it goes, whoever leaves,
whoever stays, it's a huge loss."
In the living room, James
is surprised by everything. April is pining for clams
and seafood. Beau says that Ivette has a good fashion
style, while Cappy and Howie need some help. Howie...
spells rhubarb one more time. "R-H-U-B-A-R-B". Correct.
Now we get the ugly truth
in the Diary Room. April calls Maggie a strong player.
Janelle doesn't really like her. Jennifer says Maggie
will help her. Sarah... is disappointed in Eric. She and
Janelle cast votes for him, while Jennifer and April
vote to evict Maggie.
Both wouldn't be here were
it not for the unlikely team of Kaysar, the son of Iraqi
immigrants, and Janelle, a Minnesota cutie. "Maybe the
twist is put two normal people in a house of freaks."
First, we head to the OC to visit Mr. & Mrs. Ridha (and
sister Dalia, who doesn't get the whole bikini thing),
who came to America in search of freedom. Every day,
they pray that his difference doesn't cause a stir in
the house. From there, we head to Grand Rapids, MN to
visit Janelle's mom, Ann, who says that she always
wanted to leave. Judging from high school pics, we see
now what we have suspected all along... the draperies
don't match. "You know, she is very well read and very
intelligent." Dalia doesn't think Janelle is typical of
Kaysar's company. "She's a very intelligent girl. We
like the way she acts. And that's why I think Kaysar's
picked up on her." Ann thinks that Kaysar was drawn to
Janelle because she thought of him as very different.
Are they outsiders? Dalia thinks that they'll bring down
Kaysar in the HOH room. "This alliance was sprung from
circumstance. She lost her partner first. And I had lost
mine. We came together because of what's left over."
Julie suffers a one-time glitch by inferring that Maggie
is Eric's partner. Dude! I know he's figured it out, but
he's not supposed to know that! He calls the nominations
Secrets are beginning to be revealed, as strategies are
coming out. James... isn't a teacher (duh) and isn't 27
(double duh). April says that James has lied the most.
Everyone spills on the couples except for Ivette, Beau,
April & Jennifer. "Heh, yeah right," Howie says. Cue
Ivette giving what might be the WORST fit of sadness
ever feigned in the Big Brother House. She swears that
she can pull it off.. Not for looooooong. Same for you,
April and Jenn. In fact, you were found out a long time
ago. "We've seen each other once, twice..." As for
Ivette... "Beau and I were put together." She only gives
half the story, saying "I'll save (why Beau and I were
put together) for the end of the game." Light bulbs go
off in Eric's head.
"You're both gay." So much
for the secret that the houseguests will NEVER guess.
"Expect the unexpected. DUn dun duuuuuun."
Back to the Diary Room, ya
freaks. Howie doesn't like Eric's authority. Beau likes
his leadership. James thinks he's a cult leader. Ivette
thinks they're both peas in the same pod. Beau evicts
Maggie. James evicts Eric. Ivette evicts Maggie. Howie
evicts, uh, Eric. Rachel.... is the swing. "Bottom
line... I'm watching out for myself."
Unfortunately, we had some
nasty weather round these parts, so we go right to the
eviction. Here's Julie...
"By a vote of 5 to 4....
Eric, you have been evicted from the Big Brother House."
With that, the battle lines have been drawn. But how is
Cappy taking this? "There were some deals that made that
were broken." He underestimated Kaysar as a player.
"He's been coined King Kaysar, but that's part of the
game, hiding yourself." And as for the experience? "I
will tell them that their father is still a man of his
word. The best thing I got out of this is the
friendships gained." Here's a message from Maggie.
"Don't you worry about me. You are an awesome person and
you know that. You've brought more to me from being my
friend than I can ever ever thank you for." Eric thinks
that they got rid of the wrong person. "They have way
underestimated the strength of her."
Well, that said, it's time
COMPETITION: Power Roller
Each houseguest is given a
ball and the aim to get as close to the center of the
target at the end of a lane without going over, falling
into a hole, or falling into that center hole. The
person who does it the best is the new HOH. You only get
one shot so pay it forward.
Janelle starts off nicely.
Howie puts a bit too much arm on his roll. Ivette...
about as strong as Howie. James tries the bounce.
Janelle is still ahead, though. April puts a little
English on it, and as a result... Hole in one. Beau ...
not close enough. Jennifer also tries the bounce, but
she gets the drain-o. Maggie... knocks Janelle from her
perch. Rachel rebounds... but too much on it. So it's
all on Sarah. Down the first chute. Maggie is the new
HOH. And revenge begins anew tonight.
But first, Julie has some
news... She lets EVERYONE know that EVERYONE has had a
partner in the game since the beginning. But there is
more. "If a pair makes it all the way to the end..." Oh,
do I need to repeat it?
"And remember, there are
still plenty of secrets left in the game." Will we find
out one Saturday? You'll just have to tune in to find
